4th World Ceramic Biennale 2007 Korea
Deadline: October 6, 2006

The World Ceramic Exposition Foundation (WOCEF) initiated the World Ceramic Biennale Korea (CEBIKO) in 2001. There are multifarious biennales in the world, but there are not many biennales being held under the theme of ceramics. Amongst Ceramic Biennales being held all around the world, CEBIKO has established itself as an outstanding ceramic biennale in terms of its quality and size.

Korea, along with China, has a distinguished history and tradition in world ceramic history and astounding numbers of ceramic masterpieces including Goryeo Celadon and Joseon White Porcelain prove Korea as a nation of ceramics, therefore it is only natural for Korea to hold a world ceramic biennale.

Ceramists from every corner of the world are invited to take part in the 4th World Ceramic Biennale 2007 Korea International Competition. This grand-scale international event, frequented by the world's finest ceramic artists, focuses on defining new values and creative direction for 21st century ceramic arts. The international competition, one of the main events of the World Ceramic Biennale Korea, will be held from April 28 to June 24 2007 where ceramic artists from across the globe will compete in categories of "Ceramics for Use" and "Ceramics as Expression."

Winner of the Grand Prize, Cebiko 2005 - Philippe Barde, (Switzerland), Human Bowl Faces.

Any individual or group regardless of age, gender or nationality may enter. There is no size restriction; each individual or group is allowed to submit up to 3 entries in total regardless of categories. This year no specific theme is given. Entrants are free to express their innovative and original ideas that will contribute to the development of the ceramic industry and arts.

The judging panel will be comprised of venerated ceramic experts from each continent, and the winners of the competition will receive the largest cash prize ever conferred (Grand Prize: KRW 60 million, Total: KRW 213 million) to encourage the spirit of creativity and contribute to the development of ceramic arts. We anticipate talented and innovative artists to take part in the 4th CEBIKO International Competition to open a new horizon for 21st century ceramic arts.

Application form for Cebiko 2007. Deadline: October 6, 2006.
